Hello Evergreen Community!

On behalf of the 2018 Evergreen International Conference Planning
Committee, I would like to announce the official call for proposals for the
2018 conference and pre-conferences being held in St. Charles, MO from May
1-3, 2018.

The criteria for submitting program proposals for the 2018 Evergreen
International Conference and the link to the program submission form are
available at:

There are four tracks under which you may submit a proposal:

   - *End user:* best practices and techniques for using Evergreen in
   day-to-day library operations.
   - *General:* programs on training, making the decision to move to
   Evergreen, participating in the Evergreen community, and other topics
   related to using Evergreen and open source software in consortial and
   standalone environments.
   - *Management/Leadership:* programs related to the administration,
   management, and leadership of Evergreen systems and staff.
   - *Technical:* topics related to system administration, software
   development, implementation, hardware, and integration with other software.

You may also submit proposals for *Pre-Conference* workshops.
Pre-Conference workshops are 3 hours long, in order to go more in-depth on
the topic or training.  They take place the day before the conference
begins (April 30, 2018) and are offered at an additional registration
cost.  There are slots for four pre-conference workshops.  *Note:
 Pre-Conference proposals are due earlier than other proposals.*
Instructions for Submitting Proposals:

   1. All submissions must include a session title, short description
   appropriate for the conference program (no more than 200 words), and the
   names, institutions, job titles and email addresses of those who will be
   presenting the material at the conference.
   2. Indicate your intended program track (End User, General,
   Management/Leadership, Pre-Conference, or Technical) and presumed technical
   expertise of your audience (None, Low, Moderate, High).
   3. List any technology requirements.
   4. Fill out the submission form – 2018 Program Submission Form
   5. The deadline for submitting *pre-conference proposals* is Friday,
   November 17, 2017.  The deadline for submitting *all other proposals* is
